This duality has been reflected in classical as well as modern literature as reason versus passion, or mind versus intuition. The split between the conscious mind and the unconscious. There are moments in each of our lives when our verbal-intellect suggests one course, and our hearts, or intuition, another.
Ornstein, Robert E.

What rights are those that dare not resist for them?
Tennyson, Lord Alfred
It is the eternal struggle between these two principles -- right and wrong. They are the two principles that have stood face to face from the beginning of time and will ever continue to struggle. It is the same spirit that says, You work and toil and earn bread, and I'll eat it.
We cannot really think in one way and act in another...

Who digs a pit for others will fall in themselves.
To believe in something, and not to live it, is dishonest.
One might as well try to ride two horses moving in different directions, as to try to maintain in equal force two opposing or contradictory sets of desires.
A good swordsman is not given to quarrel.
I cannot divine how it happens that the man who knows the least is the most argumentative.
Casa, Giovani della

Remember that when you meet your antagonist, to do everything in a mild agreeable manner. Let your courage be keen, but, at the same time, as polished as your sword.
Sheridan, Richard Brinsley
I have fought a good fight. I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. [2 Timothy 4:7]
Talk back to your internal critic. Train yourself to recognize and write down critical thoughts as they go through your mind. Learn why these thoughts are untrue and practice talking and writing back to them.
Mckain, Robert J.
Reason guides but a small part of man, and the rest obeys feeling, true or false, and passion, good or bad.

As long as you keep a person down, some part of you has to be down there to hold him down, so it means you cannot soar as you otherwise might.
Commonly they must use their feet for defense whose only weapon is their tongue.
Sidney, Sir Philip
No man ever did a designed injury to another, but at the same time he did a greater to himself.
Don't jump on a man unless he is down.
Dunne, Finley Peter
We know better than we do. We do not yet possess ourselves...
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Instead of suppressing conflicts, specific channels could be created to make this conflict explicit, and specific methods could be set up by which the conflict is resolved.
